An easy knit with enough textural and semi-lacy interest to keep your knitting mojo going.
- Knit sideways in one piece from end to end, the border and edging are worked as you go
- Plain stocking stitch in a centre is surrounded by interesting textures that let a luxurious hand dyed yarn shine
- Features some (intended) holes but I hesitate to call it lace – the 6-row repeat has just 1 row of yarnovers and decreases, which technically makes it LACE. It's definitely lace suited also for beginner lace knitters.
- The nicely textured cable along the upper edge is also quite straightforward. Unlike many smaller cables, this one does require a cable needle (or a double pointed needle).
The instructions (charted and, in the English version, also written out) give you a generous shawl, but the size is quite easy to adjust.
